195/50 on all 4 wheels...............

I ran 195/50/15 for 4 years on my 2008 with 15x6 Rial wheels. Should have come from the factory with 15x6 wheels. It
makes a world of difference on curves and crosswinds...................

thank you Albert. i assume the fact that the tire is a 55 shouldn't make any difference since the sidewall is only .38 taller

I think you will get a better ride, with taller sidewalls. Even a little bit of extra sidewall makes a difference in softness of the ride.
After talking to you, I realized you scored a GREAT DEAL on those rims. I thought I got a great deal on mine, but it was only good compared to yours.
After we talked, I realize it wasn't just something you wanted, but needed on the car. I know it's going to be pricey, but well worth it in the end.

Take Care my friend.
